Away they go
Previous iterations of the episodic documentary series were "Long Way Round," an eastward journey from London to New York City in 2004, and "Long Way Down," a southward odyssey from John o' Groats in Scotland to Cape Town in South Africa, in 2007.
"Long Way Up," takes the two best friends and their returning crew on a slightly truncated trip north following a route along the fabled Pan-American Highway.
Within the first three episodes of this series, the duo visit:
-- Parque Pingüino Rey in Tierra del Fuego, Chile, at the tip of South America.
-- The Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina's Los Glaciares National Park, which rises above turquoise glacial waters.
-- Salta in northwest Argentina to take the Tren a las Nubes (Train to the Clouds) -- one of the highest in the world at almost 14,000 feet.
The visuals satisfy an increasingly unbearable wanderlust that has become more acute during this year of coronavirus lockdown.
